NB There are five regions in the above HADUKP data, so only SW England & S Wales fails to appear with a record. This regional data only starts in 1873, so misses out on the record wet year of 1872, which almost certainly would have set more records.

Of course, there were no TV crews around in the 1870’s to spread their message of calamity. However, the Royal Windsor website has an interesting set of engravings and reports, collected from the Illustrated London News, of floods in the area in the 19thC. The full set is here, but these are the entries for the 1870’s:
